Haryana Home and Health Minister, Anil Vij has today said that a new freight terminal will be established in Ambala to enhance freight transportation. This terminal, to be positioned on the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor, will provide traders from Ambala and neighboring states with the convenience of sending and receiving goods to and from any part of the country.
Vij held a meeting at his Ambala residence with Ambala Deputy Commissioner Dr. Shaleen and other officials to delve into the project’s details. He emphasized that the new freight terminal would not only serve Ambala’s traders but also bring advantages to those in nearby areas like Yamuna Nagar, Patiala, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, and Chandigarh, among others. The proposed terminal, situated on the Ambala-Saharanpur line near Ambala Cantonment, is part of the plans for the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor. The Home Minister deliberated with DC Ambala about securing the required land for the terminal, with the Haryana State Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) playing a pivotal role in this aspect.
